The Truth about Chicory
by Sharon Brown
We first tried coffee with chicory in 2001, when we met our friend Lisa. She loves Community Coffee with Chicory. We’ve never become fans of the taste, but many people love that unique flavor. It also has less caffeine since it’s cut with chicory.
Save your money: Delicious cups of wonder from the world of COFFEE
by April Campbell
I don’t want to pay out the nose for coffee treats, either, and this article gave me some ideas that will be especially nice come holiday time when we entertain. Most are too fattening to enjoy regularly here.
Coffee tasting on the Big Island of Hawaii
by Jill M. Nicolaus
I tried Kona Coffee for the first time last year, when a customer brought some in for us to grind for him at the store. He’d been to Hawaii and visited the plantation and brought some home. He gave us enough to make a batch French pressed. It was sweet, smooth and delicious! I can see why people rave about it, but I can’t see us spending that much on coffee beans.
Happy, Hunting Grounds
by Jeremy Wayne Lucas
I wish Caribou Coffee would offer a grounds recycling program like Charbucks Starbucks does. Several times this summer, I brought grounds home when I worked, but there is nothing in place for customers. I am not a Starbucks fan as far as their coffee goes, but they’re doing a good thing in their “Grounds for your garden” service.
Cowboy coffee: Keeping it real
by Summer Walla
I do not like percolated coffee, but when you’re camping even the nastiest coffee tastes pretty good first thing in the morning.
Bird Lovers, Wake Up and Smell the Shade Coffee!
by Marna Towne
Many people have never seen what coffee looks like before its beans are dried and roasted. This article is a nice overview of how coffee is grown.
Diana’s Anise Biscotti
by Diana Wind
I so love crunchy biscotti! We even have bronze fennel growing in our birdfeeder bed, but have I harvested it for use in cooking? I need to! Diana’s directions are so clear, I think I could manage this recipe.
So, there you go. There’s plenty of good coffee reading for you, so grab a cuppa Joe and settle in for some armchair traveling (and drooling).
